Reel History

The Reel History of Britain retells the fascinating stories about how life in Britain used to be, through the film collections of the British Film Institute and other National and Regional Film Archives.

The BBC Two series will focus on a different aspect of British life, highlighting the hardships and simple pleasures, as well as the enormous social changes that took place from the 1900s onwards.

Press the Red Button to get more from Reel History. Each week we are showing in full some of the very best films from the BFI archive.

This week: Housing Problems

This film takes us back to the 1930s - a time of slum housing and great hardship for many of Britain's working classes. This groundbreaking social documentary pioneered the technique of using real people to tell their own story to the camera.

Dragons' Den

It's a new series and there's a new Dragon in the Den - logistics tycoon Hilary Devey. A new raft of keen entrepreneurs are about to enter the Den and make a pitch for an investment that could make their business - and change their lives.

Here on the Red Button we get to peek behind the scenes and get the inside story on the investments made in the Den each week. What attracted the Dragons to the business? What did the other Dragons make of the deals? And why did the entrepreneurs take the deal they did in the Den?
